“Birthday getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed in a water view room to celebrate my November birthday and it was very nice. The lobby has a nice fountain, lounge and restaurant. The next morning at breakfast we were able to enjoy a table by the window and watch the boats heading down the waterway. They made eggs any way you wanted and had most of the regular breakfast items.

The hotel is a little dated but our room was a good size with a refrigerator and coffee maker. I would consider staying here again on another trip to Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: The water view was pretty.

We stayed here for one night before running a 5k race in MB, this was a older Holiday Inn that has been redone, not bad , a little dated, the only complaint that I had with the facility was they did not have 24 hr coffee. In room coffee makers just don't make that great coffee, before racing I have to have my coffee. So I had to settle for that this time. Great price for the room, nice and clean and very good sleeping bed! Prob will stay there again!

We appreciate your stay with us! I'm not much of a coffee fan myself, but I do understand where you're coming from. I'll get with the Food and Beverage Department and see what we can work out for future stays.

We stayed at the Clarion while golfing in Myrtle Beach.

It is an older property but is in pretty good shape. The lobby and common areas are very nicely done. They have an on site restaurant and bar and indoor/outdoor pools. The rooms facing the intracoastal waterway have nice views and small balconies.

My room was nice sized and very clean. No complaints at all. The AC worked well but, the room did feel a little damp.

The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient.

I hope that the area around the hotel rebounds. It is near the defunct Hard Rock theme park and the nearly abandoned Waccamaw factory outlet center.

The free breakfast was a bit better than expected and included eggs coked to order.

Check out the Boathouse Bar and Grill next door for some great wings.

Thank you for giving us a review. We've notified our Maintenance Department in regards to the room feeling "damp" and they have made some improvements to our exhaust system so I'm pretty confident that they have resolved this issue.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay; the next time you are in our area again I hope you give us a call. Thanks!

The hotel was very clean and the staff was super friendly. The hotel restaurant deserves an A. The hotel location was very convenient. Everything was within a few minutes of driving distance. I will definitely refer others.

Room exactly as described. Tub was a too small for bathing, but in good repair. Beds were comfy, and room ink used a small balcony and 2 chairs. Breakfast had hot & cold items, a far higher qualtity than website description indicated. View from dining area and inlet facing side of hotel was exception. When back in town, this will be the first hotel I look at.

I must compliment the Clarion Hotel group for having outstanding personal service. Your manager on duty, Judy Woodby, helped clear and solve some visiting issues pending with me, my wife, and some very close friends of ours who just moved to Surfside, South Carolina, which is located close to this particular Clarion Hotel. I hope the Clarion Hotel is proud of her; furthermore, I hope I can find the staff members at other Clarion Hotels equally like Ms. Woodby. Again, our compliments to the staff at the Clarion Hotel, at Myrtle Beach. Cordial and personable service is a key to repeat business, and the Clarion Hotel will have our primary consideration when we travel.

We stayed here for four nights and it was quite an enjoyable experience. Room was OK, if a bit small. Lobby was very nice but the breakfast was outstanding. They even took orders for eggs. Plenty of everything a great variety. Service was very good. Downside is that it is a 20 minute drive to the beach, but it is very close to the outlet mall and the stock car track. We would definitely stay again. All rooms had a veranda.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the "back side" of the hotel, much better views.
